Thanks for the beer, iowaherkeye. Pours with a pretty dark amber to copper body. A light khaki head on top. The aroma has some rich notes of oranges and caramel. A nice floral character throughout. The taste has some bitter orange peels and burnt bread crust. A little too bitter and unbalanced for me.

12oz bottle from tytoanderso - thanks, Santa! Copper pour with a vibrant, champagne-like carbonation rather than the fluffy head I was expecting. Sweet aroma reminded me of one of the old Push-Ups I used to get from the ice cream man. A bit of bitters in the taste, and a very slick mouthfeel, add up to a nice delivery system for this well hopped and sweetly satisfying IPA.

Fresh keg, just tapped. Cast in a bronze/amber hue, big, creamy white head. Mellow aromatics, floral, citric hops, very even and cool. On the tongue, here’s the first spank of hops, the citric/pine tickle, lingering on the palate, then slowly fading off. Bright orange flavor peeks in just a bit. Hops and orange flavor keep trickling in, but it’s never too much. Tastes a lot like Bitter Woman, but juicier, moister, ...lacks dryness, but that’s what makes it unique. Very tasty, very drinkable. Yum.

Scurvy has actually been one of my top health concerns ever since I changed my diet to consist of only beer, meat, and cheese. I was worried the orange would dominate this beer, however it’s well balanced, starts off subdued and then grows to a bitter finish. I’d been seeking this out for a while, and am glad I found it.

undsioux7 (841) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Pours deep amber with a nice sized tan head. Aroma of orange, citris and pine hops with a bit of caramel malt. Taste is the same with more of the orange coming throuh. Similar to old bitter woman with more citris and malt backbone. Good stuff maynard.

12oz bottle. Poured a medium amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of oranges, citrus, piney, and some fruitiness. Nice and hoppy. Tastes of orange peels, grapefruit, pine, and some caramel.

Bonused bottle from my want list from pepsican. Huge thanks for this one!
Pours a clear amber with a nice puffy light beige head. Smell is sweet candied orange peels and a pleasant citrusy hop character. Somewhat unique and very pleasant. Taste is fruity, moderately bittered and finishes with a balance of sweet orange flavor, melon, and light lingering bitterness. Definitely very fruity and citrusy. Light to medium bodied with normal carbonation. A very solid IPA overall.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Bottle from iowaherkeye. Thanks dude! Pours a nice copper color with a lasting thin head. The aroma is nice and fruity containing tart grapefruit and orange as well as some sweetness fromt the malts. Initial hoppy burst is also fruity with lots of grapefruit, followed by funky catbox, some orange peel, and a little sweet doughy malt. Very fruity with a lingering hoppy bite that had a dominant citrus quality. A finely crafted IPA.

Stine (1649) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Clean, copper appearance clear as water with a healthy whitecap. Wet pine, green spiciness and cotton candy aroma; sticky in bitterness and in sweetness; hints of peach, wet grass, dough, and brown sugar. Crystal malts loiter with a needless, cumbersome weight of sweetness. The orange peel does well to set that to rest in the flavor, and quite quickly; the citrus touch is thick and bright, and enough to more or less bury the cloying, slick quality of the malts. Chunky sweetness layers flavors of white chocolate, pistachio, and cookie dough, but these are washed away in bitter resins and wooden herbs. growing somewhat little abrasive in the middle with celery salt and burnt grass. Medium bodied, and somewhat sharp from citric qualities and moderately high carbonation; finishes with a burst of orange peel and a sticky smack of citrusy sugars. It’s fine, and it isn’t much besides that.
